EUR/JPY: a bearish bias to close the week - FXStreet

FXStreet (Guatemala) - Valeria Bednarik, chief analyst at FXStreet explained that the EUR/JPY pair aims to close the day with some limited gains, having however, traded in its wider daily range for the week.

Key Quotes:

"Draghi's comments dragged the EUR lower in the London session, with the EUR/JPY down to 131.47, a fresh weekly low, from where it bounced up to 132.59. Choppy intraday trading did nothing to modify the ongoing neutral bias in the pair, as the 1 hour chart shows that the technical indicators have turned horizontal around their mid-lines, whilst the early advances beyond the 200 SMA were quickly reverted, and the price is now hovering around its 100 SMA."

"In the 4 hours chart, the technical indicators have advanced up to their mid-lines, where the recoveries stalled, while the price remains well below a sharply bearish 100 SMA, currently around 132.90, all of which continues to favor a bearish continuation for this last day of the week."
